Investors have bypassed Bulgaria because they have been hampered by high levels of corruption and a lack of specialists. We now have an influx of investors and those who are returning, Innovation and Growth Minister Daniel Lorer told bTV.

The first money from the Recovery and Sustainability Plan will be for industrial zones, which will be developed in new regions where there is interest, Lorer added. The Minister was indignant that since the death rate in Bulgaria is the highest since the Spanish flu, protests against green certificates are being held in the country. 

According to Lorer, investors are asking who will work in the factories, so high vaccination is an important condition for investment to come, the minister explained.
